Visit Santa Maria de Montserrat Benedictine abbey early in the morning for a more peaceful and spiritual athmosphere. Learn all about Catalonia's most important religious retreat, visit its Basilica and Museum. Marvel at the mountain views and the impressive St. Jaume rocks.

Highlights
  • Enjoy a guided visit of Montserrat Monastery with its centrepiece Basilica and Museum
  • Avoid crowds and admire the Black Madonna the Virgin of Montserrat, the Patron Saint of Catalonia
  • Marvel at the magic views and spectacular surrounding mountains and rocks
  • Taste some delicious liquor, handmade by the Benedictine monks

The tour was an excellent way to get to see Montserrat and going early before the tourist rush was great. The beginning of the tour was guided and then there was plenty of free time to explore on your own. It was really nice having the museum ticket included in the price and was well worth the visit. The tour guide, Javier, was very friendly, funny and made the experience enjoyable. Definitely recommend this tour.
